Young or old, rich or poor, famous or not… this COVID-19 pandemic affects us all. No matter what our unique story is, it’s touched each one of us. Every part of the globe has been impacted. And there’s a lot of fear, frustration and uncertainty running throughout all of humanity at the moment.
Still, I’m awestruck at how quickly and mightily this pandemic has revealed just how connected we all are as one human race. And it’s never been more clear that we all share this one planet together.
So, even though I feel and acknowledge the fear, frustration and uncertainty that we are all feeling, I also see how unifying this extraordinary state of affairs is turning out to be.
I can’t help but wonder if this could be a divine answer to our prayers in response to all of the divisiveness, inequality and destruction we’ve been suffering with for so long. Isn’t it reasonable to believe that our prayers to end this suffering would eventually be answered? Ever since I was a little boy I was told that “God works in mysterious ways, his wonders to perform…” Well, this is definitely a mysterious way.
I’ll continue to pray for an end to all suffering. And if this insane pandemic is truly a divine answer somehow, then I know all will turn out for the best. And I say Thank You.
